Phil, I think your snake eel is a Ophichthus triserialis, after consulting my Miller & Lea, and the local Snake Eel experts. The only other snake eel found in California (Ophichthus zophochir, Yellow snake eel), has no spots at all.

Of course, if you want a 100% id, just bring me the fish, lol.

I'd love to see it sometime!

Scott
